Cultivating Myself Well and Waking up Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) I work in a factory workshop where there are more than 100 employees. All of them know that I am a Falun Gong practitioner. The salary is not good and the work rules are strict, so people come and go.
Everyone who has been here for an extended time have learned the truth of how communist party persecutes Falun Gong. They believe that Falun Gong practitioners are absolutely not what is presented in the media. They know that the Tiananmen Square self-immolation is a hoax.
I make very few mistakes and have been recognized as the most outstanding employee. I accomplished this because I follow Falun Dafa's principle “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance” all the time.
My company is where I practice and validate Falun Dafa
Most of the employees are female; to get promotions and benefits, they often talk behind each other's back. I used to do that, too. However, after I learned Falun Dafa, I knew that I had to always think of others. Even though I sometimes failed in this, I tried my best not to be as calculating as most people.
I got used to evaluating myself according to Dafa and disciplining myself by the principle of Dafa. I was willing to do what others didn't want to do, and thought more of the needs of colleagues and leaders. When I heard one person talk about another worker, I said to her, “It is not good to talk about that person. Why don’t we think of her good qualities?” She agreed and we never did it again.
My company is where I clarify the truth
Everyone knows that I always expose how the communist party persecutes Falun Gong. Whenever a new employee joins us, he/she would know me in few days. During breaks, workers would often come to remind me to clarify the truth to the new employee.
I talked to them even when they played on their smart phones. Many were willing to listen to me and, after they fully understood, they would agree to quit the CCP and its associated organizations.
Some were happy about this, some were not but I didn't give up. I would say that everyone here was willing to listen to me and I would talk to them later. A few days later, they would find out that I did clarify the truth to everyone else. They would gradually understand and become more friendly and be willing to listen to me.
Eventually, most of them would quit the CCP.
More people awaken at my company
• After the director of the workshop knew the truth of the persecution, he would introduce new employees to me and urged me to save them.
• Eight boys and girls agreed to quit the CCP after they understood the truth; and wrote down their real names to publish.
• For several days, two girls would follow me around after lunch; they were eager to know more and asked me many questions.
• Nine college graduates not only quit the CCP themselves, but also persuaded their classmates and girlfriends to quit the CCP.
• Many workers wanted to know how to do the exercises, and asked me to teach them.
I truly feel that people are awakening. As long as we try our best to clarify the truth, more people will be saved. I know that Master is the one who really saves people; all we need to do is to talk. If we try our best to follow Dafa’s principle “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance” all the time, what we do will be effective and we can actually validate the Fa and save people.
Here is an example: My child’s school scheduled a field trip to do sketching, but she had a chess competition at the same time. What should we do? I called her teacher and explained the situation. The teacher said my daughter had to go on the field trip unless she was sick.
With good intentions, the teacher suggested that I just say that my daughter was sick to get out of the field trip. I couldn't do this because I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. How could I lie? The chess competition was very important to my child, so I had a dilemma. No matter what, I told the teacher, I couldn't lie.
The teacher told me to call the dean of the school. Very calmly I told the dean, “My child spent a lot of time and effort to prepare for the chess competition and we spent a lot of money, too. Could she be excused from the field trip?”
The dean said that she couldn't make this decision, and I had to report to the principal. At that time, the principal called the dean and learned about our situation. The principal decided to make an exception for my child, and only required that she make up the sketching homework later on.
My first thought was appreciating what Master had done. I knew that as long as we held righteous thoughts, Master could do anything.
When I told the teacher about the principal's decision, she said that she would never suggest anyone to lie again. The next day when my child came home from school, she told me, “My teacher received a bill with a truth-clarifying sentence on it. She read it to all the students in the class and said, 'We received a very good bill. It says Falun Dafa is good!'” I'm very happy that people are awakening.
I knew that Master was encouraging me and couldn't be more appreciative of what Master did. I will be more diligent and hold righteous thoughts all the time to save more people.
